NEVADA – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced today that it is now allowing residents applying for instruction permits or non-commercial Class C driver’s licenses to take the written test online.
Applicants can take the test through the DMV’s website. They will need to create an account, verify their identity, and take the basic Class C knowledge test. The test cannot be taken on a phone or tablet.
“This is only the latest example of the transformation that’s reshaping the way the DMV does business,” said DMV Director Julie Butler. “Giving Nevadans the ability to take their written test at home is convenient, reduces the need for at-window services, and gives aspiring drivers more opportunities to take and pass their written test.”
The online test will be hosted through KnowToDrive Online. “We feel very confident in ITI’s virtual testing environment,” Butler added. “The rules are very fair, and the pass/fail rates are nearly identical to in-office testing.”
Applicants can use any computer with a front-facing camera or camera peripheral to take the test in either English or Spanish. Scores will be available immediately after finishing the test, along with next-step directions for those who are successful.
The test can be taken once a day for a fee of $6.75. There is a 60-minute time limit for the test, and it cannot be taken online and then repeated in-person at an office on the same day.
To take the online written test, visit the Nevada DMV website and create an account. Once you have created an account, you will be able to verify your identity and schedule a test time.
The DMV encourages applicants to review the Nevada Driver’s Handbook before taking the test. The handbook is available for download on the DMV website.
